Perth’s agriculture technology hub has gained five talented teams in its coworking space to further the progress of the burgeoning industry.

Since its doors formally opened in February this year, Combine Agtech Hub has been a thriving space for Perth’s agtech startups to find a new home in the Perth CBD.

Supported by DPIRD (WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development) and CBH (Co-operative Bulk Handling Ltd), Combine is offering scholarships to assist startups in the Agtech industry. Allowing companies to focus on finding new ways of addressing industry-specific challenges, such as climate change and integration of IoT, this sector is seeing a lot of interest from the startup community and investors alike.

Five startups have recently joined the Combine Agtech Hub, all with a unique mission to influence change in what is fast becoming a booming industry:

A word from Environmental & Cropping Technologies Australia:

We’re excited to be joining the great team at Combine Agtech Hub in Perth….. along with fellow Ag & AgTech companies HectareWide Open Agriculture, iGrower & Go4OrganicsAU!

Environmental & Cropping Technologies Australia company Director Philip said, “Working with Combine gives us the ability to stay at the forefront of adopting, testing & implementing new technologies which can ultimately help improve on farm efficiencies & help address upcoming industry-specific challenges throughout Western Australia”.

“Combine (and it’s parent organisation Spacecubed), are both renowned for their ability to help foster innovation, whilst also allowing us the opportunity to be directly immersed & working with industry leaders & up-comers involved in design & prototyping, as well as the agricultural, resources & energy industries” Philip noted. “Working from a second location (in conjunction with our home-base in Esperance), helps ensure that as our company and service offerings expand, we can effectively support more clients throughout WA in their technology uptake processes”.

We look forward to this opportunity in bridging and resolving the technology barriers & digital divides between suppliers & industry, in the ultimate aim to improve on farm productivity and efficiency.
